Lot 2
I-80 x Donor 260 (Monopoly/Cunia 602)
Heifer (Maintainer) March
*Full sib from our 2016 sale just won Reserve Champion FFA Maintainer Heifer at the NE State Fair 2017!! This embryo mating has done well for us for a lot of years. We’ve sold numerous full sibs to this heifer and they’ve been no strangers to the backdrop. Best of all, this heifer is the most complete one we’ve ever had. She's thick, she's deep, and she's powerful. Amongst all these things she's still feminine, sleek fronted, and with her attitude she'd be ready to hit the show ring the day you pick her up.

She sells THIS SUNDAY SEPT 10th
